1)Not trying to be an arse here, but "from a natural justice standpoint" what should be done about the millions of civlian deaths (not to mention
the deaths of millions of children) that have occurred since WW2 as a direct result of western economic imperialism, resource grabs and illegal
2)Does this "natural justice" apply only to those who act against the west, which is a direct consequence of our aggression, or does it apply to us
Should this "natural justice" apply to those who took us into an illegal war, killed hundreds of thousands (at a low estimate), lied to western
citizens about it, and basically used the lives of our forces and non combatants for what was in reality a resource grab?
Or does it only apply when it happens to "one of our brave heroes (to quote the propaganda)?
You can't have it both ways.
Would a muslim who grabbed a childs hand and put it on his crotch be let off, like the soldier was this week because it was "not sexual"?
Honestly, nothing can be done. Syria/Iraq/Iran great examples of how UN resolutions/sanctions have the ability to kill hundreds of thousands of
civilians and indirectly attribute it towards the leaders/dictators of the regime these sanctions are against. "Legally" this is acceptable
behaviour mandated by the United Nations.
Justice is not blind, for justice has a memory, or precedent. A blind man many not know what the color green is, however when asked about an apple he
can describe the taste, smell, feel, the sound it makes when you bite into one.
The punishment should fit the crime regardless of precedent and rely solely on the circumstance.
There is the rule/law of the jungle/nature's law/God's law of balance, eye for an eye.
But break that down. Say a lioness takes down a elephant. the pride gets to eat. then some vultures maybe a hyena or two, but then you have insects
and other forms of life feeding and nourishing themselves off of that carcass that was killed by the lioness. Acting on instinct that they need to eat
requires a sacrifice to be made in order for that food pyramid to survive. that is the la of nature.
To complicate that scenario, add consciousness( true, false, right wrong, thought/emotion, morality) to the equation.
Man comes home and finds his family murdered by the hands of a sociopath/pedophile and reactively takes his life with his bare hands. Does the
punishment fit the crime?
Some would argue yes, other no. and that is all based on knowledge/believe structure on whether or not it has been compromised.
There is the rule/law or man. which is necessary to live in a civilized/consciously aware society. Man needs law as boundaries and guidelines to
prevent acts of evil from happening which any person is capable of if the environment is right.
Because man has allowed ourselves to enjoy and corrupt the Law of man, we have the world we live in today.
Rebels are hired guns to do what the GOVT's can not do legally, so they find loop holes to get away with the unconstitutional, legally.
